Editorial Reviews

The Three Stooges return with the next 24 digtially remastered shorts covering the years 1949-1951 in this sixth collection, which continues with Shemp as the third Stooge, who had stepped in two years earlier to fill the shoes left empty when Curly became ill and retired. This collection contains such classics as MERRY MAVERICKS (1951), a reworking of PHONY EXPRESS (1943) featuring Red Morgan and his gang of bandits; SELF MADE MAIDS (1950), in which the Stooges not only play themselves but assume the roles of their fiances, their fiances father (played by Moe) and their three babies; and DON'T THROW THAT KNIFE (1951), which features Larry, Moe and Shemp in brilliant improvisation with nothing but household items while confined to a single room. The Three Stooges Collection Volume 6 showcases Larry, Moe and Shemp at their best - and things just keep getting better!

These shorts are from the era when the Stooges were comprised of Larry, Moe, and Shemp. These are the probably the last of the great Stooges shorts. With television encroaching upon the motion picture industry, cost cutting measures were soon underway. One such measure taken at Columbia that had already impacted MGM and other studios was the decrease in scope of the short-subject department in 1952. Stooge short veterans producer Hugh McCollum and director Edward Bernds were casualties of this action, and this left only Jules White behind as a person in the short subject department with a feel for what made the Stooges special. Shooting schedules were shortened, old Stooge shorts were cut up and recycled into sparse new material, and fans were not fooled by all of this.

Do be aware that the first six volumes of the Three Stooges will be available in June on The Three Stooges Collection, Volumes 1-6 Bundle. This really is not a great buy, but is pretty much on par with what you pay for all six volumes when they are on sale. This might be the way to go if you don't have any of the volumes yet.

"Disorder in the Court" is the most outrageous court scene you'll ever see. If you have a heart problem, don't forget to have some NTG on hand. The belly laughs could get dangerous. The other three include perhaps the funniest that Shemp ever did. "Malice in the Palace" is one of my favorites, in spite of being without Curly. "Sing a Song of Six Pants" includes a fight scene that is an all time classic - whirling pants hangers (with real thugs wearing them) that sometimes strike the good guys, as well as the bad guys. "The Brideless Groom" is the weakest of the four episodes, but the phone booth scene with Shemp and Moe hopelessly entangled in miles of phone wire is worth seeing.

Sony has been doing The Three Stooges proud in its continuing series of restored and remastered DVD editions. Volume 6 is highly recommended for comedy fans and a must for Stoogeheads. Many of the 1949-51 films benefit from witty scripts and direction, and are exceptionally funny.

The best shorts here were produced by Hugh McCollum and directed by Edward Bernds, who soft-pedaled the gratuitous roughhouse and allowed Shemp, Larry, and Moe to improvise freely. This brings new freshness to the standard slapstick format, and shows how professional and resourceful Howard, Fine, and Howard were. (You'll see many amusing instances when a scene is supposed to be over, but Bernds keeps the camera rolling to see what the Stooges will do.) The films also benefit from Columbia's resident stock company of the late 1940s: the lovely Christine McIntyre and Jean Willes, both equally adept at playing sincere heroines and crafty schemers; the suave Kenneth MacDonald, a definitive villain; the versatile Emil Sitka, appearing here in any number of guises; veteran comic Vernon Dent, playing the Stooges' foil with his usual authority; expressive comedian Dudley Dickerson ("This house has sho' goan crazy!"), and the superlative stuntman Jock Mahoney. It isn't easy to steal an entire film from the Stooges, but watch Mahoney in the clever PUNCHY COWPUNCHERS; you'll roar as he indulges in some athletic and hilariously clumsy slapstick.

"Disorder in the Court" is a good early Stooges comedy. It's also one of the best "Curlys." The boys, working as musicians, are called as witnesses in a murder trial. The Three Stooges make short work of the courtroom's stuffy respectability. The "Curly on the witness stand" segment rivals anything in classic comedy films, from the Marx Brothers down. After the bailiff has trouble getting Curly to understand the oath, the judge tries to explain, "He asked if you swear..." Curly interrupts and replies, "No, but I know all the woids!" Curly's testimony includes so much jive-talking musician language that the defense attorney instructs him to "drop the vernacular." The perplexed Curly, looking at the hat he is holding, says, "Vernacular? That's a derby!" To get around these problems of semantics, the guys suggest they "act out" their testimony. Incredibly, the judge agrees, and complete pandemonium ensues.
The Three Stooges are arguably the greatest representatives of low comedy in the history of film. Moe, with his trademark sugar bowl haircut and his usual cranky demeanor, is the master of the eye-poke and the face-slap. Larry, his explosion-in-a-matress-factory hairstyle and his handog attitude, is mainly caught in the middle between Moe and Curly. The rotund Curly, his familiar "dirty tennis ball" crewcut, his "woo woo" expressions, and his "nyuk nyuk" laugh, has an otherworldly quality that defies written description. Curly Howard (a real example of a clown who laughed through his tears) could very well be given the "most under-rated comic genius of the 20th century" award.
